As we get older, keeping ourselves looking and feeling great is high on everyone’s list. But between daily stresses, pollution, and, well, another year wiser, it can sometimes seem like an uphill battle. The good news: our pure astaxanthin (it’s asta-ZAN-thin) can give you some welcome support. It’s a red plant pigment (called a carotenoid) that’s extracted from Arizona-grown algae, and it’s a true wellness multitasker: it gives you antioxidant protection, keeping your skin firm and hydrated, and your eyes healthy as you age. Astaxanthin has also been shown to support your heart health, and immune function. To help you feel even better about your choice, our astaxanthin supplement is non-GMO and made with olive oil, not soybean oil. With 12 mg per softgel, it’s inside-out support you’ll want to prioritize.*
Promotes overall eye health* - Movies. Concerts. Sunsets. Meeting up with our favorite people. Seeing is the basis for so much of what we love. So, we all want to help keep our eyes healthy — especially as we age. Research has shown that taking at least 6 mg of astaxanthin daily can do just that.
Great for glowing, healthy skin* - In a study of 49 middle-aged women taking 4 mg of astaxanthin or a placebo for 6 weeks, skin elasticity, moisture and wrinkles were measured by dermatologists, and clinical instruments. In the women taking astaxanthin, the derms noted fewer wrinkles, and the instruments showed that both their skin’s moisture content and elasticity were up! Bottom line: this supplement loves skin.
Gives your heart a hand* - Another reason to add astaxanthin to your routine: A 2011 study measured the lipid profiles (including LDL cholesterol) of 27 people with a Body Mass Index over 25 kg/m2 who took 20 mg of astaxanthin vs a placebo for 12 weeks. At the study’s end, the group taking astaxanthin had lowered their LDL. So it’s a simple way to show your heart some love.
Keeps your immune system going strong* - Astaxanthin is known to be one of the most powerful antioxidants around (500x stronger than vitamin E) — when it comes to cell-damaging free radicals, it puts up a serious fight. That includes helping to protect your immune cells, which are particularly vulnerable. In fact, a 2011 study in Nutrition & Metabolism showed that taking 8 mg of astaxanthin for 8 weeks gave “natural killer” immune cells a boost, compared to those taking a placebo. A great thing to remember when cooler weather rolls around.
Product Description: A deep-red plant pigment that’s part of the carotenoid family (like beta-carotene and lutein), astaxanthin benefits us in many ways: it gives your cells powerful antioxidant protection against free radical damage, and it’s great for supporting your eyes, skin, heart and immune system.* Our astaxanthin supplement features a natural extract from Arizona-grown algae (called H. pluvialis), and each high-potency, 12 mg softgel is made with olive oil, not soybean oil. With our one-a-day formula, it’s super easy to fit into your routine.

How We're Different
We know that astaxanthin sources are top of mind for anyone reading up on this potent free-radical fighter.* Unlike other supplements that may use synthetic varieties, our astaxanthin comes from a natural algae that grows in Arizona ponds, called H. pluvialis. To preserve its purity, the deep-red pigment is extracted without the use of chemicals or heat.
With 12 mg per non-GMO softgel, take one daily and you’re done! And because it’s small, it’s easy to take.
Astaxanthin is fat-soluble (dissolves in fat). So, supplements need to include a fat to help your body absorb the astaxanthin. To ease any soy concerns, Viva Naturals Astaxanthin softgels are made with olive oil, not soybean oil. And, they’re free of artificial colors, flavors and preservatives.
Ways to Enjoy
Suggested Use: Take 1 softgel daily following a complete meal, or as directed by your healthcare practitioner.
